The Usain Bolt 19.19 video reveals the Jamaican sprinter has smashed his own world record. See the Usain Bolt 200m Video in Berlin and photos here. The impressive three-time Beijing Olympic champion sprinter has set his second new world record at the IAAF World Track and Field Championships on Thursday, August 20, 2009.
Once again at the Berlin, Germany 1936 Olympic Stadium which is the setting of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics , the sprinter known for good reason as the Lightning Bolt won the 200-meter gold medal with his world record setting time as the Usain Bolt 19.19 Video remarkably shows.
This takes off a full 11-hundredths of a second (0.11) off of his previous world record of 19.30 seconds, which he set at the 2008 Beijing Olympics last year. Earlier this week he also smashed his 100M world record by running 0.11 faster.
In the August 20 race, he beat the second place finisher Alonso Edward of Panama (19.81) and Wallace Spearmon of the United States (19.85) who respectively took silver and bronze medals in the race.
The sprinter, who celebrates a birthday and turns 23 years old on August 21, stand 6-foot-5 (1.95m) and has been unstoppable at these distances giving one historic performance after another, as most recently seen in the Usain Bolt 200m Video in Berlin. In an interview with BBC sports the victorious sprinter assessed his performance. He has previously told the news organization that he did not expect he would set a world record in the event as he had missed a month of training due to the car accident he was involved in earlier this year. He said:
I can definitely say I didn’t expect that because I was a little bit tired. I said let’s try because people are really looking out for this, I said it won’t hurt to try. So I tried really hard and now I’m really tired.
“Maybe next time I should just run the 200m or the 100m alone. My form was going backwards. I wasn’t running upright. It wasn’t a good race but it was a fast one.”
A fast race indeed! Readers, share your thoughts. Did you see his record setting race live?
